After several states negotiated a $195 billion settlement with the tobacco industry, State F used some of its money to create a youth-advocacy group whose anti smoking advertising campaign was written entirely by high school-age students. The governor of State F has urged the state legislature to increase funding of this group because only teenagers know how to persuade other teenagers.

Which of the following, assuming that it could be carried out, would be most useful in order to evaluate the governor's desire to provide further funding to the youth-advocacy group?

A. comparing the short-term effects of State F’s anti smoking campaign to the project long-term success the campaign will probably enjoy

B. breaking down the statistics for the decline of teen smoking into a month-by-month analysis and determining which months saw the steepest decreases

C. comparing the decline in teen smoking in State F to the decline of teen smoking in other states that received money from the settlement and implemented advertising campaigns written by adults

D. requiring that more adults be hired to supervise the group's finances

E. comparing the aggregate number of smoking products bought the year before the group was set up to the number of smoking products bought during the year since the group was set up

It boiled down to C and E. Ill go with E because it directly compares the result of what teenage campaign is going to do. C option is tricky. The state F has also received settlement and is planning to implement in teenage campaign. But we dnt know about other states or their adult campaign. The reasoning is not based on that. Moreover, we don’t know if any of the states are even comparable or not. For example, if state E already has very less percentage of people who smoke, then this comparison will fail by default

e

I disagree with you on this, I think Answer would be C as we have to evaluate the effect of campaign written by teenagers not other anti-smoking campign

Tough call between C and E but answer should be C.

Conclusion - The governor of State F has urged the state legislature to increase funding of this group
Premise - only teenagers know how to persuade other teenagers

C. comparing the decline in teen smoking in State F to the decline of teen smoking in other states that received money from the settlement and implemented advertising campaigns written by adults >> When we compare decline in teen smoking in State F with that in state that used campaigns written by adults, we can evaluate the two correctly. If the numbers decline at same level, then his proposal is useless otherwise will work.

E. comparing the aggregate number of smoking products bought the year before the group was set up to the number of smoking products bought during the year since the group was set up >> aggregated number of products is not point of conversation here, it is decline in teen smoking. Hence, incorrect.
